Liberia: FRTUL Denies Change of Name Report

The Federation of Road Transport Union of Liberia (FRTUL) has categorically denied a story in a local daily attributed to one Mr. Augustine J. Nagbe (alias General Power), that the FRTUL name has been changed to Independent Mano River Transport Union of Liberia.

According to a release, Mr. Nagbe who is also claiming to be the Acting Board Chairman of the so-called new Union, has further alleged that the FRTUL is engulfed in corruption and the misused of five million ($5m) Liberian dollars collected from members.

The release says, that Mr. Nagbe allegation is false, diabolical and has no iota of truth. The FRTUL leadership headed by Mr. William P. Flomo is calling on Mr. Nagbe to retract his statement within forty eight hours of face law suit.

The release further says that the FRTUL is a legal entity certificated by the Liberian Government. The leadership of the Union was elected at a convention in April 2012 by delegates from the 15 counties in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County according to the Union's constitution.

The release stated that no one or group of people can dissolve a legal entity except the government of Liberia. The release added that Mr. Nagbe and his cohorts have no moral or legal right to dissolve the FRTUL.

The President-General of the FRTUL, William Papa Flomo is calling on all members not to give credence to Mr. Nagbe and his group. He said Mr. Nagbe has no knowledge neither has he been a member of FRTUL.
